Kevin Devine and Manchester Orchestra's Kevin Hull started writing songs together basically to kill time, but as these things often do when they're good, their on-a-whim collaboration has evolved into something you can buy, and, if you're like me, enjoy. They're calling the band (and the record) Bad Books, and you can buy the record in October.
More importantly in the immediate future, tickets for a very short run of shows are going on sale Wednesday 8/18 at noon. That's tomorrow, if you're reading this when I'm writing it. I don't expect they'll last long, so you might want to find a way to make yourself available to grab tickets online right when they go on sale.
